Summary

Hi, I'm Kathy otherwise known as The Violet Fern. I love to paint and I love to garden. I somehow combine these two passions to make a meager, but joyful living. In my former life, I worked professionally as a graphic designer but a number of moves to small towns has made me more creative than ever. I look forward to helping you with your graphic, illustration or gardening project.

Projects

Nice Driveway

A detailed slideshow of a section of the Violet Fern garden I fondly refer to as the Nice Driveway. This section of the garden illustrates how a simple strip of lawn turned privacy screen and into something that is dynamic and life giving.

Meatless Monday Poster

I am a devoted Vegan and happy to donate a poster design advocating Meatless Mondays for the Humane League.

TI Park Gardens

I am in the process of converting mainly traditional, annual gardens into perennial gardens with annual accents. I also head the children's group at the Community Garden. In 2014 we learned all about bees and pollinators and built a bug hotel.

Potager

Enjoy a slideshow showing the process of how I created the Violet Fern vegetable garden which is called The Potager.

Bird & Butterfly Garden

Enjoy a slideshow of the making of the Violet Fern garden. This section of the garden is entitled The Bird & Butterfly Garden and was designed to attract and feed birds and butterflies.

Summer in a Jar

This is a recipe illustrated with watercolor. The recipe text was added using Illustrator and Photoshop.

Bear in the Basket

I illustrated this book using watercolor as a medium. I created the layout for this book using digital photography, Photoshop, and InDesign. (Size is in adherence to Amazon guidelines.) This book was then converted to a PDF and uploaded to Amazon. Joe and I are currently working on a sequel "Bear in the Bathtub."
